Golden Books Littlettes

When I was a child, I was showered with hand-me-down Little Golden Books. My mom always said that I pored every inch of each page. It would most certainly explain why they are so worn out and filled with gibberish writings.

I was intringued with how the books are used to make crafty and adorable items upon seeing Pip's (from Meet Me At Mike's) Little Golden Books wallet and handmadelove's repurposed journal. I thought both were brilliant ideas, and I Flickrd for more Little Golden Book Goodness.

So motivated by the crafty goodness, I have been hunting for Little Golden Books in thrift stores. Recently, I found one, but it was so worn-out and filled with gibberish writings, that it simply could not be salvaged for crafty purposes. Why do children express their love for a book in such messy ways? ;)

And one last note: Thanks for such sweet comments on the previous post =). I still wonder how I made such great bloggy friends in the space of just a couple of weeks =). You all rock! You know that, don't you?


  1. I love to make stuff but don't think I can tear a book apart, not even for crafting purpose, bec' I love books even more. =D

    Have a great day!
